I was sent the wrong size, and missed the return date.

EDIT: I'd like to retract the 'comfy to wear' comment below - I am once again getting the bottom of the cups digging into my ribcage and get very deep, painful, welt-like marks there when I take these bras off. I think these bras just run way too shallow for me now, and the projection I have at the bottom of my breasts is forcing the bra lower and lower over the course of a day. This also explains the overspill I get late in the day, in a bra that has slight gaping when I put it on in the morning. If I keep ... these it'll be as bedroom bras. I'd only recommend them for those with extremely shallow breasts. Otherwise, give the Showgirl line a miss.
Finally got the sizing right with this bra! I have two 30J Tease Mes, one in Black/Scarlet and the other in Cherry/Blush. For reference, I usually wear 32H in Curvy Kate and Panache, but I have a full-on-bottom shape and was warned that the band on the Tease Me can be quite stretchy. I sized down once in the band (to 30HH - I tried this size and it was the tiniest bit too small after a minor weight gain) and then up in the cup to 30J. I'll point out that the Cherry/Blush colourway seems to run very slightly smaller, but not enough that I feel I'd need a bigger size.
The detailing on this bra is gorgeous, and it's very comfortable to wear despite having lacy trim - Curvy Kate have very cleverly constructed this bra so that the lace doesn't come into contact with the skin at all. The only comfort issue I sometimes had in the 30HH before it stopped fitting me was that occasionally the band under the cups would flip up and dig into my ribcage, but this doesn't appear to happen with my 30Js, oddly enough. The ribbon on the centre gore in my Black/Scarlet Tease Me is slightly angled, so occasionally (and annoyingly) the ribbon end flips up to peek out the top of my shirt. However, I think it'd be quite easy to fix this by stitching the ribbon back into position. The straps of this bra are also very smooth and stretchy, so someone who needs to wear their straps tightened all the way might have issues.
I do have a bit of a bone to pick about the sizing. This bra is labelled as a 30J, but someone with the same shape as me who was a true 30J would most likely find it unwearable due to quadboobing. I recognise that the shallowness in the bottom is what gives the Tease Me the ability to provide 'cakes on a plate' cleavage, and I know that this is what is causing me to have to size up. Somebody more FOT would probably be able to wear this without sizing up. I do feel though that Curvy Kate marketing this as coming in D-J can be a bit misleading since there are so many people that, like me, have to size up, and this makes the size range more limited than it first appears. I know a lot of people are also quite irritated about the band being stretchy. Once I got my 30J, I found that occasionally the band did feel a little tight over the course of a day, so I could probably wear a 32HH or a 30J in this bra - I think that sizing down in the band will only be an issue for those who need very firm bands or those who need a 28 band or below. But again, this annoys me on behalf of the people who do need these things, particularly since the market for 28 bands is as limited as it is.
I like this bra - I'm comfortable in it, I don't feel like I'm going to pop out the top, it's very good at preventing visible nipples etc. through shirts and I get a nice round shape under clothing - but I feel there are a lot of women who need larger cups and smaller bands who'll have trouble fitting into it.

Damn cute bra! Cornflower periwinkle blue with white satin ribons and bows - screams girly.
True to size band with 3 hooks as the gods intended when crafting J cup boobs. Nicely stretchy yet seriously sturdy.
Quality materials & workmanship.
The bitch of it is that the wires are just too freaking wide for me. Also, I don't think the cup height scales down sufficiently as you move down in band size; it simply overwhelms the width of my torso & cuts into the front of my arms.
And the cup is still not the volume of a J; more like a GG ish.

Well hell. I do love this bra in theory, but it's just too shallow. Unlike the Thrill Me of the same size, it is at least wearable, but my standards are now higher than that thanks to this site.
It seems okay for the first few hours, but by the end of the day, the weight/projection of my boobs pushes the underwire down onto my rib cage. The cup is too shallow for me & the wires too wide. It's just an incompatibility of shape. I'm only able to make it work in the WAY TOO SMALL cup sizes because the wires are narrower ... and my boobs are able to flow out of the top rather than slowly push the bottom down.
This one is the cornflower blue with ivory ribbons - sooo pretty. I've worn it a couple of times and I'm going to send it back into the universe.
Curvy Kate has so much going right in this bra: beautiful style, quality materials/design/manufacture, sufficient band/support (3 hooks w/decent power mesh wings). The only thing I can really complain about is the straps because they are plain color-matched elastic that fold over. It's not uncomfortable (to me), but it looks cheap at the end of the day.

Aww what a gorgeous bra. I have the black and cherry colorway from figleaves. It is 1-2 cup sizes too small which I knew before I bought it. It is a very comfortable bra and one of the sexiest I own. I wish CK would expand the cup sizes of the Tease Me and come out with more vibrant colors in the future. The gore does not sit flush but that's because it is too small. I also wish they would make a nude and black style with the same cup construction for everyday.

I'd so wish it would fit me, but it doesn't.
I recommend going down 1 band size from you usual band size (band is very stretchy) and go up at least 1-2 cupsizes from your usual bra size.
Especially if you need much cup depth: size up.
The cups are quite shallow. Shoulder straps are out of stretchy material and fully adjustable!
It is one of the comfiest bras I ever tried. When I used to fit into the Tease Me I would have slept in them.
It's also a extremly pretty bra & it gives that spectacular Marie Antoinette cleavage
So if you are not out of the size chart, grab one !

I love the style of the bra, I really do, but something about it just doesn't fit right. The cups go too far over the breasts and has this empty space. And the band is too big for me, I had to put it in the second loosest one to be able to put it on, the loosest one, was just that, too loose. I had bought the Tempt Me in a 30J and was hoping, because it's the same brand (Curvy Kate) I'd be able to buy this bra and have the same fit. Unfortunately, that's not the case. I believe that if it fit correctly, I'd be in absolute love with it.
